The $300m Christophe de Margerie carried a cargo of LNG from Norway to South Korea in 19 days, about 30% quicker than the conventional southern route through the Suez Canal. On its maiden voyage, the tanker used its integral icebreaker to cross ice fields 1.2m thick, passing along the northern sea section of the route in the Russian Arctic in a record six 1/2 days.
